aside from his first day of work to his last, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> the tech world was rocked last week by news of the suicide of 26-year-old internet activist aaron schwartz, the computer programmer and free information advocate was facing up to 35 years in prison if convicted on federal charges of computer hacking and wire fraud over the illicit downloading of million academic and subscription data base and charges his family and supporters say the amount of prosecutorial overreach contributed to schwartz's decision to take his own life. the u.s. attorney is pushing back against the claims saying her office acted fairly and responsibly, and offered schwartz a six month prison sentence in exchange for guilty plea to 13 felony counts. a deal schwartz rejected. wall street journal editorial board member has been following the story and joins us now. joe, who was aaron schwartz and why was it it a big deal. >> he's an important figure in the digital world in the sense he's an open source activist. he advocates an ideology says that in
sports and all society have to reckon with at some point is the fact that the technology and science are going to raise these questions over and over again as we go forward. because it's not totally clear where you start -- where you draw the lines. right now we think tommy johns surgery is okay, even though you come back with a stronger arm than you had before. that's a medical enhancement. that's not something that's part of your natural gift. that's something that you earned. at some point we'll have laser surgery that will allow them to see better. is that a drug? is that something you should be allowed to have or not? people will be able to do things scientifically, technologically to their bodies to make them better performers without any effort. so where do the lines get drawn? how do we figure out how to cope with the march of science? >> like a futurologist. >> last month bartolo colon, came back from a 93 miles an hour. >> that's okay but hgh isn't. again, where do the lines get drawn? >> the reason i'm here today is because i had my blood spun last night. >> juicing. >> i'
, to the colorado science teacher that was fired after school officials found out she once starred in pornographic movies. gio benitez has the story. good morning, gio. >> reporter: good morning, elizabeth. what this california teacher hoped would end as a story of redemption, as become a cautionary tale. what you do in the past can come back to haunt you. and this morning, her porn actress past may have gotten her banned from working in a classroom again. her 12-year-old and 13-year-old middle school students knew her as miss halas, the science teacher. but fans of 32-year-old stacie hal halas, knew her as tiffany six, the porn star. now, she's out of a job, banned from teaching. a panel of three california judges unanimously agreeing tuesday that her hard-core past has no place in the classroom. >> we've had a viral buzz going around with 12-year-olds and 13-year-olds showing porn. >> reporter: the oxnard school district initially fired halas last april, after students discovered she performed in at least 18 x-rated films. from 2005, to 2006. in a behind-the-scenes interview, halas reportedly ta
. this is not based in science. martha: here's another issue that comes up with the children, alan. if you live in a family that has guns, hunters or has guns for their own security, that is how you grew up, what is the message you're getting from president obama if your dad and your mom believe that safe gun ownership is, their second amendment right and something they should not be a shamed of? >> no one is saying that. we don't know what the president is going to say. that is different issue whether or not it is appropriate for children to be present. that is a very separate issue. i don't believe the president's ever said that hunters should not have access to guns or take away guns from hunters. that is not at all what is being discussed today. and has nothing to do whether kids should be present. martha: i disagree. i think the message is sent to children, if they're raised in a home that has guns for security or hunting, that the message is that you're not like us and it is divisive to a certain extent. >> he is not talking about taking guns. >> hold on, it is pretty simple. let's not us
of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> reporter: with 11 million illegal immigrants in america, mr. obama called on congress to provide a legal path to citizenship. >> our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our worse rather than ex--- work force rather than expelled from our country. >> reporter: mr. obama also recalled the newtown shooting massacre which caused him to push for gun control and a polarizing fight with congress he had previously avoided. >> our journey is not complete until all our children from the streets of detroit to the hills of after -- appalachia to the lands of newtown know they are cherished and always safe. >> reporter: there was one line tailored specifically for a republican audience. it called to reform or eliminate an efficient -- eliminate inefficient or irrelevant government programs. th
, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. office superstore ink retailer in america. now get $6 back in staples rewards for every ink cartridge you recycle when you spend $50 on hp ink. staples. that was easy. ♪ [ male announcer ] some day, your life will flash before your eyes. make it worth watching. introducing the 2013 lexus ls. an entirely new pursuit. introducing the 2013 lexus ls. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. >>. >> time for some housekeeping on monday, jeff from nebraska called with a question on irwonwood pharma. it is an exciting pharma play that launched a drug that is designed to bring relief to people who suffered from irritable bowel syndrome. it's up in anticipation of the launch. ironwood et's ood beat the street's earning earning expectations, with t
? >> it has gotten out of control. we have the national academy of sciences commissioned by the usda that runs the food stamp program. their bottom line conclusion somehow we should be increasing spending because food stamp recipients aren't able to buy enough healthy food. explanation here is that in urban centers, it's much harder to get fresh food or organ i can food. if we simply increase the stipend that somehow the recipients will make better choices. unfortunately, again, it's too much common sense for these federal bureaucrats that run the programs. the problem if you give these food stamp benefits out, easy t cards and remove the stigma and remove strings attached to them, guess what, they are going to buy crappy food. there is an unwillingness, look, part of this contract between a welfare recipient and taxpayers that have to subsidize it you have to accept limits. apparently the social welfare people think this too much of stigma, it's too much nanny state government. you need to let them by their soda and crappy food and give them more money. >> neil: we put a gloss on it where we
science abstract, they say that not only does it affect psychological development in young -- not only young males but also young women, but there are physiological changes in the way the body responds to arousal regarding violence. i mean, you look at this study and look at other studies, it's all out there. and it's obvious. and i think the denial of this from people on the left i think hurts their cause. >> yeah. >> like we've said from the very beginning, this is a very big all-encompassing problem that we have to face together. it's not left and right. >> not a denial. as a guy who has a business background who wants to solve a problem, the more you focus on video games, the more you let the nra off the hook to solve this problem, you get the guns. i hate those video games. i'm not saying it's an either/or, but sometimes it is an either/or. that's the solution. >> donny, i don't want to let people like quentin tarantino off the hook. i don't want to let people like your friends at activision off the hook. people that make billions of dollars selling mind-numbing violence -- >> i h
first day of work to his last, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> bring back our gaggle here, former senator john shn sununu, manti teo, a good friend pd of show wrote -- stories like these leaves knots in our stomachs because we so desperately want to believe our sports heroes are pure and we want to hope too that our politicians are at least competent. we build them up, break them down because we expect so much out of our national institutions. you think he overwrote? >> i think one we don't know all the details about the teo situation. >> they were concerned about these reputation, what information they had, he's a young guy. obviously he was misled to some extent in this whole process. the lance armstrong situation is very different. i think the election we just had for the baseball hall of fame because of the use of performance-enhancing drugs. >> if the university thought that there were some possible fallout, i mean the athletic director said this could have been about interacting ncaa requirements, it could be about extortion, if that's
at the science of the numbers and i instantly thought about climate change. this rejection of facts, numbers. not of opinions but numbers. >> there's truth to that. you don't fight research unless you're worried what the research says. you know, you hear these arguments all the time, in particular from, you know, the nra leadership and others, in particular, in terms of this is not just about guns but a lot of other issues and there's some truth to that and focus on the entertainment industry and the role of video games. well, the last time i checked they watch the same movies and play the same video games in canada and don't have the same kind of violence here in terms of guns so there is an issue here about gun violence and the question is how do we come up with, you know, common sense reforms that obviously respect the second amendment and make sure that we can do maybe go an extra step to protect individuals so when you're fighting against universal background checks as an example, you know you have a problem. >> well, but part of the problem and e.j. touched upon and other progressives
and the more sophisticated the screening gets and the more sophisticated the science gets and there may be ways not only to identify hopefully in advance and treat folks who have these potentially very dangerous problems, but also, at least it also poses a real challenge for the criminal justice system because to the extent that what we think of as evil actually has to do with a kind of sickness or real mental disease. >> right. >> it changes the way we think about culpability and blame-worthiness. not excusing the horrific behavior but we have to protect society. maybe without talking about blame and culpability in quite the same way. >> right. that's great. if neuroscience identifies the markers, that's a huge advance. the other end of it from a policy standpoint is president obama talking about more money for psychiatric services for specifically young people to try to figure out an early age prone to violent behavior. i guess my two questions about that, i wonder, first of all, is this going to necessitate a change in the law about doctor/patient confidentiality? if a red flag, you know, is
, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> a vicious attack caught on camera. a man throws a woman onto the subway tracks. it happened in philadelphia and police say the woman was sitting on a bench when the man asked for a light for a cigarette. suddenly the man grabs the woman and punches her and gets worse, drags her by her feet and throws her onto the tracks and the woman managed to climb back on to the platform before the train came. and she was not seriously hurt. and police arrested the suspect. they don't think he knew the victim. and a pennsylvania pastor accused of not murdering one wife, but two wives. he came under suspicion in 2008. the man committed suicide in his office, the man discovered he was having an extramarital affair with his wife, the church secretary. and the first was found in a pool of blood at the bottom of the stairs in 1999 and the seconds in a car accident in '08 or so they thought. they thought the car was a coverup for murder and right now he's on trial for the second murder. today the pastor taking the stand in his
progress at this point in time in history. >> some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult, but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries. we must claim its promise. >> this is not a president who is blind to the history of any given moment. today's inauguration ceremony was filled with moments of historical importance. myrlie evers williams, the widow of medgar evers became the first woman to deliver the inaugural prayer. poet richard blanco is the first latino to recite the inaugural poem, as well as the first openly gay american to perform the honor. supreme court justice sonia sotomayor became the first hispanic american to administer the oath of office when she swore in vice president joe biden. president obama spoke with these historical moments in mind during his speech. >> our j
may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> former vice president al gore, a sometimes critic of the president's environmental efforts, writes in his blog his forceful commitment to take action will rekindle the hopes of so many that we are at long last approaching the political tipping point beyond which we will finally start transforming our economy to sharply reduce global warming, pollution and safeguard the future. let's bring in democratic strategist and pollster margie o'mara and senior vice president with the winston group, myra miller. good morning. margie, the president wants to focus on what he can do administratively with executive orders although he does plan simultaneously to campaign for public support. very different strategy than he used in his first term, isn't it? >> well, yeah. i think the lesson really here for both obama and for congress is that voters want people to come to the table and find compromise on whatever the issue, whether it's
is also a science. >> reporter: welcome to the good life at google. this campus in mountainview california offers employees comfort, privileges and perks that workers at most other companies can only envy. but what may seem like luxuries are actually good business, and google can prove that because the company studies everything it does. >> we try to bring as much analytics and data and science to what we do on the people side as our engineer do on the product side. >> reporter: lazlo bok heads the operations department. google's data mining gives detailed notion what pays off. >> when an employee starts on the first day, we have data that says if the manager shows up and says, "hi, nice to meet you, you're on my team we're going to be working together," those people end up 15% more productive in nine months. >> google will be an -- >> reporter: to make sure the rest of the googleler's career remains productive is david radford's responsibility. >> we thought it would be a great idea to build a building that allowed us to try new things and find out what w

the hypocrite of hollywood and says he has not been an active member for years. is science cology a cult? >> of course it is. of course it is. a system of belief, you got these folks inside this fortress who won't look out, won't look at any criticism and can't bear to -- any investigation and think that everyone is against them. how would you describe that? it's a cult. of course it is. >> well, larry ryan is a pulitzer-prize wing author, his new book is "going clear, scientology, hollywood and the prison of belief." good morning to you, larry. >> good morning. >> pick up with paul haggis left off. he calls scientology a cult. based on your reporting, is that what you would call it? >> i don't use those words, only one opinion that matters about whether it's religion or a cult and that's the irs and they made that decision in 1993 in the nation of 2400 lawsuits from the church and church members. >> concluding it is a religion? >> yes. >> let's talk about what you found in your book. you say you interviewed more than 200 people you looked at thousands of pages of documents. what is the
not a super sophisticated guy. is he a graphic design major not a hard sciences. is he a child of this era which is an onliner ravment social media era. maybe it's not as weird for a 20-year-old to have exclusively online relationship. i can't relate. >> alisyn: we talked to tyler moorehead a student at notre dame. he knows manti. yes in this day and age people can go periods of time without seeing significant other because of social networking. he said manti had extremely rigorous demanding time consuming schedule. he frankly didn't have time for a girlfriend. this fit his life as well. having an imaginary girlfriend fit his life as well. here is what tyler moorehead told us. >> campuses what we have known of manti for the last four years this exactly matches up that he really wanted to care for this girl. he thought this girl was real. and he truly was duped by this human -- this human being who kind of catfished him, i guess. it did seem to kind of come out of nowhere. and i think that people were just really asking questions why and several people knew he had never met this girl. i thi

may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it! >> all right. so, for david maraniss, for some inside the echo chamber, there might have been some concern that there wasn't enough reaching out by the president to republicans on spending, on fiscal issues. but isn't this speech, the second inaugural, more to lay down markers for even generations to come, and then we have the state of the union, where perhaps he can address some of the short, and i mean, in the grand scheme of things, the short-term issues that our country faces. >> i think that's true. and i also think that this speech was ideological, but he's a pragmatic president. and so i think that not everything that he said in the speech -- you know, he said that it's going to be imperfect. the solutions will be imperfect. he's not going to try to please every constituency.
